1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Fin-ished", Way to Die #963, is the fifth death to be featured in "The Good, The Bad, and the Dead", which aired on March 8, 2009.


Kathy is a sexy girl who enjoys fishing. She gets a bite on her line and gives it a mighty heave. Kate's mouth opens as she stands there impressed watching the fish fly through the air. It comes down and lodges itself into her open mouth and goes deep down her throat. As she attempts to pull it out, its razor sharp scales tear the inside of her throat. Unable to, Kathy chokes to death.
